Middlebury gets spooky as Halloween draws near
MIDDLEBURY — Better practice your cackle, dig out your best wig, find a vessel to collect treats within and head downtown on Sunday, Oct. 29. Yet again, the Better Middlebury Partnership will bring an outstanding Halloween event for kids of all ages and adults to the town of Middlebury.
Hay bales, festive games, face painting and costumes will decorate the town green for the tenth annual Middlebury Spooktacular. Rain or shine, the green will be alive with music, dancing, costumes and tasty treats like cider donuts, loved by all ages.
Festivities will kick off at 1 p.m. and will conclude with a children’s trick-or-treat parade along Main Street led by the legendary Spooktacular Witch.
The children’s Main Street trick-or-treat sidewalk parade will leave the green at 2:30 p.m. Accompanied by parents and Spooktacular volunteers, the procession will cross to the Post Office and continue along Main Street to Cannon Park, where the parade will cross and go back up the street to the town green.
So,start planning your costume and get your candy bags ready.
Spooktacular is an annual event hosted by the Better Middlebury Partnership, a non-profit community organization, working to support initiatives to make Middlebury a better place to live, work and play. Spooktacular is supported by BMP members as well as this year’s sponsors, Neat Repeats and the National Bank of Middlebury.
